Not All Advice Is Good Advice

Going through my feed:

Advice on friendships – what is considered a great friend?

Family – family is everything – does that mean we accept bullshit and always forgive only to have them do the same thing to you again?

Love – he/she is truly a kind person. They had a rough upbringing. I need to be more understanding. Help them because that’s what good people do. Even if it means my happiness comes second?

Follow your passion – it will pay off. Does that mean one day you’ll make enough money to support yourself and quit working for someone else?

Let us talk about this. I also threw in the Grammys. JLo, Cardi B and trolls.

Holding Myself Accountable

 

I’m halfway there. I just need to get through a couple more stages.

  • The rough draft is complete
  • The format has been laid out
  • I’ve chosen a title (I think )

Now I need to:

  • Proofread and edit
  • Complete artwork

Not too much right? I’ve looked up a few self-publishing sites. I think I’m going to go with Create Space (owned by Amazon). This will be my first book ever. How the times have changed. No more waiting for someone to think your book is good enough.

This age benefits the artist. Whether you’re a writer or a singer. There are plenty of avenues to get your work out to the masses.

What I’ve learned…content creation is everything. Work on your craft constantly. The more you do it, the better you will get. The more content, the better.

Social media is the game you must get really good at.

Marketing and advertising – we don’t have to pay tons of money for it at first. I don’t pay for any social media platforms. Once you get real momentum, you should start paying for advertising. Facebook, Instagram, etc.

I decided in order to build momentum I needed to get myself on the court. Like, I can’t score if I haven’t even tried out for the team. I have a couple of books I’ve been working on. It’s hard, I admit. At times the creativity is flowing and sometimes I come to a complete stop. I thought to myself, I have tons of poetry. Things I’ve written and saved through the years. Why not get those out now? Why wait?

So, I’ve set a deadline for myself. June 20th, 2018! I just randomly picked a date 😆 I think maybe I should look at my astrology first. Well, definitely mid-June. Now that I’ve put it out there into the universe, I’m holding myself accountable. It’s one thing to think it in your mind and write it down. It’s another to say it out loud and put yourself on the spot. I’m not one to back down from a challenge…even with myself 😉

The race is on 🏇🏇🏇

Too Much Talking and Not Enough Doing

Or is it too much thinking and not enough doing? Probably both.

Advice to myself today. JUST DO IT. JUST DO IT. JUST DO IT.

NO EXCUSES. JUST DO IT.

Thinking too much equals NO ACTION. Many of us confuse busy work with productive work. Better figure out the difference real quick.

Happy Monday!
